(Didn't find any.) It's an unusual bluish colour. The tree looks like a Poplar, is that right? It could help with the id. Alison March 20, 2013 at 9:32 pm - Reply Yes, the species of tree would help. It looks a bit like willow bark, a suggestion is Willow Bracket (Phellinus igniarius)?? Dave Franz March 21, 2013 at 8:19 am - Reply Im about as good at tree id as iam at fungi id, but thanks anway.
